Default ngfrazier's ADA 75-P Tank Journal

Got my new ADA 75-P from ADGshop in Houston

Looking to build a "Nature style" tank. So far, no plants or fish

My equipment List (as of 1/24/11):

Tank: ADA 75-P (with 2 bags of Aquasoil original plus 50lbs of sand)
Light: 150 watt Aqualine HQI bulb
Pendant: ReefOptix III
Ballast: Sunlight Supply Galaxy Electronic 150w HQI
CO2: 10lb aluminum tank
Regulator: Victor Model VTS253A-1993 (dual stage + dual gauge)
Needle Valve: ....Swagelok 21 series Stainless Steel Metering Valve
CO2 injector: Mazzei 584C
Filter A: Eheim 2217
Filter B: Eheim 2215
Heater: ETH Hydor 300 watt external
UV: Some random UK company 25 watt marine uv steralizer
Stand: DIY "ADA" style (Google Jason Baliban for a good guide)

My ADA-style stand is complete. Because my house is old and the floor is NOT level I had to add "leveling feet" to the stand. The leveling feet are made in Germany and each can support 800+ pounds! They seem to do a fantastic job (much better than shims, imo).

The last pic is of the pad which will cushion the tank. ADA charges $30.00 for what is essentially a yoga pad. My solution? Marshalls (a discount retailer) for $12.00!

Anyways, will update with pics. Your thoughts and comments are always welcome!
